, if romney does not deliver a total knock out blow, the debate will largely be either ruled a draw or a victory for the president. everyone says romney has a low bar now because he is behind, blah, blah, blah, and obama is so much more popular. in terms of the media coverage, by the elite, his bar is high, not low. it will be ruled that because he is so, supposedly, so far hype, if he doesn't when by five lengths he will have done himself no good. the question is what the public will draw its own conclusion. we do not know until we see the fallout after the debate. >>neil: the view that the nation is fairly even in the popular vote but in the swing states, the president is padding his lead, the media seems to focus on the latter rather than the former. >>guest: it is perfectly fine looking at the horse race to say the president is ahead. what is not fine is to say every word that comes out of mitt romney's mouth is a behalf and every word that comes out of the president's mouth is golden. that is what happens when the president says three or four dumb things in the "60 minutes" int

, i think he will lose. if we have a very small ball debate where the romney campaign spends two days criticizing president obama for not having the following six meetings and what about the sentences he said, obama thinks he can ride that to a narrow but clear victory. i think he's probably right. so i think the key is to mange the big -- make the bigger arguments against president obama. jon: you were a big advocate for the candidate service of paul ryan -- candidacy of paul ryan before he became mitt romney's vice presidential choice. has he brought the kind of gravitas to the ticket and some of these issues to the fore that you were hoping for? >> yeah, i think so. look, in the two-and-a-half weeks after ryan was picked, the romney/ryan ticket narrowed the gap from about four points to one point. it's opened up again to close to four points because i think at the convention and afterwards the romney campaign has lapsed into a kind of pre-ryan campaign. i think ryan's clarity about the choice ahead is helpful, his criticism of the replacement rests this morning is extremely importa

president obama in the hot seat like he's never been before in these first couple of debates. >> steve: i think you're right. a couple of days ago when he was on "60 minutes," while it wasn't back to back, when you saw the president and then you saw mitt romney, i think a lot of people, because mitt romney has been demonized, it's like, wait a minute. i kind of like that guy. >> i think that's right. a lot of folks on twitter, i was tweeting about these dueling interviews. when mitt romney answered the question of what's your big idea? and he did not hesitate. he said, freedom. and now that we're seeing hillary out there yesterday, essentially proposing a global tax on the, quote, elite, mitt romney was exactly right to say our freedom is under attack at every level and my policies are going to be designed to lift everybody up and remind people that without liberty, all of this goes away. i thought that was a brilliant answer and framed the debate very well and he needs to now infuse that with a lot of more specifics, which i think you'll see. >> brian: they've got to use paul ryan that.
